This packet is a helpful tool for beginner literature circle groups. The packet includes a cover page and five worksheet/graphic organizers on:
*Writing a personal narrative that illustrates a connection to the story
*Comparing and contrasting the two main characters
*Rereading given sentences from the story and making real-life connections with each of them
*Writing a postcard
*Finding story vocabulary in a word search
*Writing sentences with vocabulary words from the story
I assign my literature circles this book and give them one week to read the book and complete the literature packet. Each day students meet to review the chapter and their packet work.
